Configuring SIP Timers

You can optionally configure two BSG SIP timers to generate timeouts.

To configure SIP timers:

  1. Access the SIP configuration for the BSG.
    user@host# edit services border-signaling-gateway gateway bsg-1 sip
  2. Access the SIP timer function.
    [edit services border-signaling-gateway gateway bsg-1 sip]user@host# edit timers
  3. Configure Timer C, which is the time, in seconds, the BSG waits for a final response to an INVITE request.
    [edit services border-signaling-gateway gateway bsg-1 sip timers]user@host# set timer-c 180
  4. Configure the SIP timer that controls the maximum time, in seconds, that signaling on a call can be inactive before the call is disconnected.
    [edit services border-signaling-gateway gateway bsg-1 sip timers]user@host# set inactive-call 72000
